WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Should Westchester County Executive Robert Astorino decide to run against incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo, he will likely be at a significant financial disadvantage, according to the Democrat and Chronicle. 

Cuomo's camp reported raising more than $7 million over the last six months, bringing his campaign war-chest to a total of $33 million, the Democrat and Chronicle reported. 

While Astorino has yet to give a final decision on running against the governor, his campaign funds sat at approximately $680,000 in early December following his decisive victory over Noam Bramson to retain his position as county executive, according to the Democrat and Chronicle.

Lightweight? Astorino has stood up to the bullying Feds to protect Westchester taxpayers. Cuomo is a bully - he was part of HUD - and he's the intellectual lightweight.

Can't say I care for voted or either one of them, but people will give Cuomo another term. Like his father, if he decides to run a third time he will be extremely vulnerable and a lightweight like Astorino could prevail.
